  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons stone-ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and red bell pepper; cook and stir for 5-6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove vegetable mixture from the skillet.

Cook turkey in the same pan over medium heat until no longer pink. Add the vegetable mixture, tomato paste, mustard, garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper if desired. Stir in broth and milk; bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly.

Reduce heat to medium-low. Add macaroni; cook for 8-10 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
